MY DIY | Marble Vanity Tray








On the vanity in my bedroom, I wanted to create a little space for my morning essentials. A place to hold my everyday jewelry in one place and my current scent, DKNY MYNY, so I could spritz as I walked out the door. One of my favorite things to do is wander around dollar stores and hardware stores looking for ways to repurpose items, especially the ones in New York, you find the most random stuff! So off I went to walk the aisles looking for supplies. I spotted some marble tiles, and thought it would be the perfect surface for my favorite items. Next up, was finding something to elevate the slab, and handles to add to the top for a little decorative flare. Total for all the supplies was less then $10! Nothing beats that. Step and supplies after the break…

Whether you’re in NYC or not, head to beginning August 19th to share your MYNY story.  And if you are in New York, make sure to come out and say hi to me at the DKNY MYNY event this Tuesday, August 19th 11-3pm at Madison Square Park. See you soon! 


What you need:
Marble floor tile
Copper tube cap
Silver Sharpie
Silver handles

What to do:
Color your copper tube caps with your silver Sharpie.
Glue caps to corners with E6000. Let dry.
Flip and glue handles to top. Let dry. Done!

This post is a collaboration with MYNY by DKNY. Thank you for supporting my amazing sponsors who make I SPY DIY possible! 




  1. This is really cute! Is the E6000 strong enough that the handles are actually functional, or are the handles mostly decorative?

    1. Jenni says:

      The tile is pretty heavy, so the handles are just decorative 🙂

      1. Rena says:

        I want also to know if the handles are only decoration or if they are strong enough as I love them really!

          If you drilled them they would be function, or used a lighter base. I would not try to use with just the glue holding them together
